QGroundControl installer fails with Error opening file for writing

Attempting to run installer for QGroundControl.

Get the following:

Error opening file for writing:

C:\Program Files (x86)\QGroundControl\QGroundControl.exe

Click Abort to stop the installation
Retry to try again, or
Ignore to skip this file

As you would imagine, the thing which now works is Abort.

The EXE is just in my Downloads folder. I have full Admin privileges on my computer.

Your guidance is very much appreciated!


Never mind! Seems it just didn’t like that directory. Installed to a different location and all is good.

Sorry if I just did a Newbie thing.
